Chemical Knots

Although I've been familiar with the Knot Theory for some time now, I found it very interesting when I read about how chemists are now using knot theory and topology in creating new and unusual molecules by changing the way atoms are connected. The Euclidean Geometry inspiring chemists to synthesize new molecules is not only helping them to think in more flexible terms but to open new doors for new ways to create more efficient medications as well as biotechnology solutions.
